Dark Chocolate French Silk Pie Recipe

When it comes to delicious tasting desserts...I am all about the chocolate! My online friend Awnya Boam sent over this delicious looking recipe for me to share with all of you. I think it would make the perfect dessert for any family gathering or during the holidays.

Dark chocolate French silk pie recipe

you will need:

1 pie shell
1 small box chocolate pudding
1 small container whipped topping
1 dark chocolate candy bar
almonds (optional)

Bake pie shell for the designated time. While the shell is cooking, break the chocolate bar into small pieces. Use a knife to chop it if necessary. Immediately upon removing the pie shell from the oven, place the chocolate bits into the hot pie shell. When the pieces are soft, use a spoon to spread the dark chocolate evenly on the bottom and sides of the pie shell. If you would like the almonds, chop them and place them in the bottom of the shell while the chocolate is still warm. Put the pie shell in the fridge. Make the pudding according to the instructions on the box. Let it sit for 5-6 minutes so it sets up. Fold in whipped topping. I like to add the entire container, but add as much as you like. When the chocolate in the pie shell has cooled, dump the pudding mixture inside the pie shell and chill in the fridge. For decoration you can add dark chocolate curls or shavings on the top of the pie or a dollop or whipped topping. Serve and enjoy.

Thank You Awnya for sharing all of our delicious recipes with me and my blog readers!
